LOWER MILFORD TWP., Pa. - A Bucks County mom is nearing a painful anniversary.
It's been nearly one year since her daughter died. Her daughter's death sent police, detectives and other officials to a Lehigh County home, but many questions remain.
Mary Dickinson's life was turned upside down on June 18, 2018. Police officers came to her work and told her her daughter, 20-year-old Alexus Quay, was dead.
"There's nothing more than you want to do than protect your children…..and I couldn't protect her that day," Dickinson said.
"I told them I wanted to see her, I wanted to see her body, they told me she was non viewable."
They didn't tell her why. To this day, 10 months later, they still haven't.
"I don't know the cause of death, how it happened. I don't know who, or what, is responsible," Dickinson said. "Which I'm scared to death to hear, but I want to know. I want to know what happened to her."
Those unknowns have made healing, an already unbearable ask for a mother who lost her child, even more impossible.
"I can't heal," she said. "There's no healing without closure."
Police have called the case a death investigation and have not identified any suspects.
The homicide task force was part of the team at the Lower Milford home where Alexus was found. She sometimes stayed there with her boyfriend.
"I'm hoping, whoever out there, who ever knows anything, that they will speak up," Dickinson said.
She certainly won't stay silent.
"I'm not gonna give up, I want answers," she said.
She wants answers for the little girl who stole her heart and the beautiful woman she grew up to become.
"She was my world…my best friend," she said.
